Agent: Shabba could leave for overseas team in December

Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala could be on the verge of signing a deal with a club overseas, according to his agent Jazzman Mahlakgane.

The 35-year-old Tshabalala spent last season with Turkish side BB Erzurumspor but could not help them save the team from relegation and then returned to South Africa.

It is being reported that 'Shabba' has agreed a deal to play for a club in Azerbaijan, although his agent refused to divulge any details.

Mahlakgane told Isolezwe: "All I can say is that we are currently negotiating with overseas clubs and we will open the talks in December or in January.

"If everything goes according to plan, Shabba will leave South Africa in December.

"It’s difficult for now to give more information because it is not finalized."

A former Kaizer Chiefs skipper, Tshabalala won two PSL titles, an MTN8 trophy and Telkom Knockout with Amakhosi, and is looking to further his career overseas before considering retirement.
